Hong Kong reclaims lead over Singapore in 2018 global liveability rankings

Hong Kong has reclaimed its lead over Singapore in liveability rankings, climbing 10 places in an annual global survey which attributed the score to lower levels of social unrest four years after the pro-democracy Occupy movement rocked the city.

The latest study by the Economist Intelligence Unit, a British-based research and analysis group, ranked Hong Kong at 35th – up from 45th last year – which is two places ahead of the Lion City. Singapore is at 37th this year, dropping two spots from last year’s 35th.

In the survey last year, Singapore beat Hong Kong for the first time on the back of improvements in education.

 

Simon Baptist, global chief economist and managing director of the unit in Asia, said the tale of two cities involved varying factors such as stability, culture and environment, education, health care and infrastructure.

The study polled 180 cities worldwide and found Vienna the most liveable, followed by Melbourne, Osaka, Calgary and Sydney.
